Square Enix has announced Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for Wii U. In development at Eidos Montréal, the game is billed as the “definitive version” of the action-RPG, which first launched on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in August 2011.
The publisher said the Director's Cut will feature “overhauled boss fights, refined game balance and combat, improved AI, and striking visual improvements which make this edition the best looking and most immersive Deus Ex experience available”.
It will also include the entire Missing Link DLC chapter and former pre-order bonus mission Tongs's Rescue, “a full slate of Wii U GamePad features including touch-screen hacking, interactive map editing, augmented sniping, grenade throwbacks and many other neural hub enhancements”, plus Miiverse integration.
It was rumoured earlier this week that the game would be making its way to Nintendo’s console after Amazon listed it for release in May. Square’s official line is that the title is “coming soon”. Check out the first batch of Wii U screenshots and the box art above.
We said in our original Deus Ex: Human Revolution review: “As far as single-player experiences are concerned, DX:HR is one of the absolute best of this console generation. Unless you insist on having some kind of multiplayer mode, or hate reading, there's no reason you won’t enjoy DX:HR. While it’s slightly more linear than the original, the level of polish and effort that have gone into it more than make up for it. Eidos Montreal has successfully blended the best of both worlds, rebooting a classic franchise without losing the core of what made the original beloved.”
